ARRL Foundation Awards 82 Scholarships in 2013


The ARRL Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce the scholarship recipients for 2013. Each year, the Foundation’s Directors have the honor and privilege of selecting Amateur Radio operators who will receive monetary assistance to further their undergraduate or graduate education. For 2013, the Foundation awarded 82 annual scholarships through 58 funds to young Amateur Radio operators valued at $110,600.

In addition, there are currently four holders of the William R. Goldfarb Memorial Scholarship for whom the awards vary based on the college or university they attend, other awards they receive and other financial factors. For 2013, the Foundation’s Directors selected Calvin P. Darula, K0DXC, of St. Bonifacius, Minnesota as the recipient of this prestigious four year scholarship. The tenth Goldfarb Scholarship winner, Cal continues the tradition of prior recipients, demonstrating superior academic performance, outstanding leadership and extraordinary Amateur Radio and community service. The Goldfarb Scholarship is the result of a generous endowment from the late William Goldfarb, N2ITP. Before his death in 1997, Goldfarb set up a scholarship endowment of close to $1 million in memory of his parents, Albert and Dorothy Goldfarb. Awarded to one high school senior each year, the Goldfarb Scholarship assists the recipient to receive a four-year undergraduate degree in engineering or science or in the medical or business-related fields. The terms of reference of the generous Goldfarb scholarship award require that recipients demonstrate financial need and significant involvement with Amateur Radio, in addition to high academic performance.

The application period for ARRL Foundation Scholarships opens October 1 each year and closes on February 1 the following year, with awards announced in May. Descriptions of all the available scholarships and selection criteria, as well as application instructions and forms can be found on the ARRL Foundation pages of the ARRL Web site.
